    Greetings everybody, car nut arriving.

    Well, actually been to Thailand etc a few times. Anyway, might be looking to buy or build something for interesting trips.
    Am building a car at the moment - and I do mean building - not rebuilding.
    Enjoy.

    Sounds great!

    Did your oily finger slip on the keyboard when you were typing your name?

    What are you building? Can you put up pictures of your progress as that would be fascinating

    A true car nut shouldn't be able to resist giving a few details.

    An Interceptor was the first car I ever went a 100 mph in! I was 8 years old and my dad was driving, it was in Canada, he turned to me and said that we had just hit 100, I think it was probably the first time he'd done a ton in a car too.

    Welcome Hensen!

    Yehhhh welcome.

    I suspect your building a kit car!
    A mate had one,bought the thing done same mind set as me in as what,s the fuck in point.
    Rapid motor though as it weight fuck all,but not doubt fold up like paper if you wrapped it up.

    Prove me a cnut by posting a photo of your build that,s not like I describe.

    Be more interested in the quality of the ore and carbon levels.

    Talking about building or buying, it seems vehicles are bloody expensive in Thailand.

    From this to that, hard to believe, would have to see ALL the pics of that project to believe that.

    I'll reserve judgement for now, mostly because I'm hoping it's true.

    There's something slightly deranged and mental about banging three V8's together. I like it!
